1:00 am
breaking news tonight in the case of a 5-year-old florida girl reportedly snatched from her own bed. little haleigh cummings vanishes without a trace. major developments tonight. the last person to see haleigh alive flunked a private polygraph, and it's all after police confirmed that haleigh was not kidnapped by a stranger. >> i put her to bed at about 8:00, and i woke up, and she was gone. >> misty croslin cummings, upset mom of little haleigh, last person to see her. we're finding out new polygraph tests taken last week, she has failed them. >> it indicated that misty was
1:01 am
deception indicating. >> misty's consistency is inconsistency. >> do you know what happened to haleigh? she answered no again. it was 99% deception. >> it's my understanding that misty did execute a polygraph and was pressured to do so. mr. miller was present and he apparently made the statement that if they did not -- if she did not take the polygraph, they were not going to bring the search teams in and search for haleigh. >> this on the heels of police announcing haleigh was not kidnapped by a stranger. croslin changes her story. now saying up to four people in the home the night haleigh goes missing. >> if people think that i had something to do with it, and if i knew where she was, we wouldn't be sitting here today. we would have her. >> the back door has two locks on the door. the second lock, which you would have to turn, is a tight lock, so it wouldn't be likely that little haleigh would have been
1:02 am
able to turn it and then let herself out the door. and then breaking news in the brutal murder of a 28-year-old swimsuit model. police confirm jasmine fiore violently murdered in a jealous rage. her body so mutilated, investigators forced to use breast implants to make an i.d. a reality tv star wanted for the murder found dead inside a motel room in canada. for the first time, the time line and other shocking details surrounding fiore's murder revealed, and we finally learn what investigators found in fiore's mercedes, the site of a violent and bloody struggle. in a heartbreaking twist it confirmed fiore fighting for her life until the bitter end. >> to describe the inside of the vehicle, there was a significant portion of blood that would appear a violent struggle did
1:03 am
occur in the vehicle. it would appear that the injuries that we had originally seen miss fiore sustain are consistent with the blood loss that would have been in that vehicle. there was some hair evidence taken from inside the vehicle on the floor, so there obviously was some hair pulling that did take place. there were teeth fragments found inside the original suitcase that she was found in in the dumpster. there were no tooth fragments found inside or on the floorboard of the vehicle, so along with other evidence, it just did not appear that the fingers were cut off or the teeth were removed in that vehicle. it was a violent struggle. it would appear that this person had fought back. and there was definitely blood evidence at the del mar hotel that they had stayed at in the patio area. the blood stains along with hair
1:04 am
that was found on that hotel patio was confirmed to be miss fiore's. >> one thing is for certain, she was killed either in that car or in that hotel room, somewhere in between, and mr. jenkins took her bed and dumped it here in buena park. >> i'm mike brooks in for nancy grace. breaking news in the haleigh cummins case. the last person to see haleigh alive flunked a private polygraph test, and she flunks it with flying colors. >> i just woke up and our back door was open, and we can't find our daughter. >> haleigh cummings' stepmom misty took several new polygraphs and in the words of one observer she failed miserably. >> did you intentionally withhold any information regarding haleigh's disappearance? her answer was no. she failed it miserably with a 99% deception. >> not only does she fail a
1:05 am
polygraph, she apparently fails a voice stress test, as well, and refuses to go along with a hypnosis. >> i'm trying to do everything to find her. you know, i'm answering questions i have to because i know i didn't do anything to that little girl. >> there is a back screen door. the one that was propped open with the cinder block, okay. now, if you see when it closes, it slams, it makes a loud noise but if you leave this door, this slowly closes, as well. >> she is so arrogant, deceptive and manipulative, she thought she could cheat on and ace a polygraph to detract the attention away from her. >> this private group for reasons unbeknownst to me that are contacting misty putting her through polygraph exams, going through the extraordinary and absurd measure of trying to put
1:06 am
her under hip n there -- hi hipnotherapy, and to me these are dangerous and outrageous tactics that i certainly can't stand for and any reasonable attorney shouldn't. >> i'm mike brooks in for nancy grace. thanks for joining us. we're taking your calls live. well, we're back to little haleigh cummings. where is haleigh? she disappeared without a trace. but the woman you see here, misty croslin, misty cross-examination, the last person to see her and again still with the inconsistencies, failing a polygraph, failing a layered voice analysis. we're taking your calls live but first straight out to t.j. hart joining us by phone in gainesville. program and news director for wsky. t.j., you've been on it since the beginning. what's the latest? from satsuma? >> the latest from satsuma is that there is a very upset young lady by the name of misty cummings. you see, about a week ago, mike,
1:07 am
the putnam county sheriff's office issued a press release. it was on haleigh's 6th birthday, by the way. in that press release they acknowledged a few things that gave out a few facts and also put out this little thing for the public. if any member of the public has any information as to the whereabouts of misty croslin cummings the night of the disappearance of haleigh, please come forward or contact crimestoppers. they need your information on this. >> really. >> a week goes by, a week goes by, and misty wants to clear her name. so she -- she approaches tim miller with texas equusearch, and he makes the arrangement. >> well, t.j., you know, there have been so many, so many inconsistencies with her -- >> oh, yes. >> -- from the very beginning, and correct me if i'm wrong, right in the beginning she and ronald, if i'm not mistaken, took a polygraph from the fbi. is that correct? >> that is correct. >> and so now they put this out, you know, where -- if you saw misty, let us know, and so she
1:08 am
on the defense contacts tim miller. i want to go out to mark nejame, an attorney from orlando, an attorney for tim miller in texas, equusearch. mark, good to see you. thanks for being with us. >> thanks talking to you again, as well. thanks. >> okay, mark, misty croslin is now upset with tim miller and equusearch, but who contacted whom in this case? >> well, if i could clarify briefly, i was first contacted by theresa nevus, the grandmother of haleigh, and that's how this all came to be. she was very concerned that focus had been lost on the child and that she kind of faded from the public eye. she had come to me and my law firm and asked how we might be able to renew some attention. so with that, i agreed to meet with her, and ron and misty came along, and it was clear that i was only going to be protecting the interests of the child and we had the idea that we would invite tim miller in. so very much the same day that the police had made their
1:09 am
announcement that they were going to -- that they had some concerns about misty, we made an announcement that tim was going to come back and conduct a search, so that allowed for a lot of renewed interest. >> so did misty actually -- did she approach tim? or was it you that actually called tim miller? >> no, i called tim. then tim met with her then she asked him to allow for the polygraph. >> so she asked tim miller to take the polygraph. >> sure, absolutely. >> now, some of the questions, i mean, it looks like she failed this polygraph miserably. now, look, i've been -- i was an investigator for a long, long time. i've used polygraph. i think it's a great investigative tool. so let's talk about this polygraph first. now, the questions, first questions, did you intentionally withhold any information regarding haleigh's disappearance? answer, no. result, 99% deception. what does that mean, mark? >> well, i think in your experience and background, as
1:10 am
you had said before, the strength of the polygraph is the strength of the person administering it, and i sought out who i understand to be the very best in central florida, strong law enforcement background. i've had him pass people, i've had him fail people, excellent people. so i agree as you agree, i'm not a big believer in voice stress analysis but a good polygrapher who has a good honest background, they are usually right on. >> and the other question, do you know what happened to haleigh? answer, no. result, 99% deception. surprise? question, do you know where haleigh is now? answer, no. well, she did a little bit better on this, 95% deception. then the other question, do you know who took haleigh? answer, no. 42% deception. what does a polygraph examiner tell you about that 42% deception? mark? >> i made it a point to stay out of that. we helped develop -- after we
1:11 am
went through the facts, we helped develop the questions so they would be point and appropriate. i've been familiar with polygraphs for 25 years so we wanted to make sure we had the right questions so that we could get to the bottom of it. >> right. >> and what the polygrapher had told him who related to me and i made a point to stay out of it, conducted in my office in the evening when i left, i made it a point not to be there but basically that there are some questions about who else might be involved or who else might know. there's some confusion as to the last question. >> oh, so she may know. she said -- do you know who took haleigh, no. so she doesn't, but there may have been other people there and one of them may have taken -- i tell you what, anything that she says so far i'm not going -- let's go out to the line. sheeba from illinois, thanks for calling. >> caller: hi, mike. i just love you to death. >> thank you, sheeba. >> caller: for everything you've ever done. you're just wonderful. >> thank you. >> caller: okay, my question is, did she, misty, have any transportation that night, and also was this little girl a
1:12 am
bed-wetter where a tall -- where she tended to be changed multiple times a night? >> a good question. let's go out to latisha lance, producer for "the nancy grace show." what do we know about that? >> our understanding is misty did not have any transportation that night. as far as little haleigh is concerned don't know about her being a bed-wetter but do know she was afraid of the dark so it would not be likely she would have gotten up and gone outside on her own. >> very interesting. especially she said there was a light on in the house. we're taking your calls live. >> did you take a polygraph? >> i did, but i'm not supposed to talk about that. they told me not to talk about that. >> but you did -- >> yes, i did take a polygraph. >> and you passed it? >> i mean my understanding is i passed it.

1:16 am
>> 911, what's your emergency? >> i just woke up and our back door was open, and we can't find our daughter. >> you can't find what? >> our daughter. >> the last person to see her, misty croslin cummings, miserably failed lie detector tests. >> misty just said, you know what, she just wanted to take the focus off of her. felt as though that law enforcement wasn't being honest with her, that she wanted to clear her name, and she asked me, is there any way that i can take a polygraph because i don't trust law enforcement. so i contacted an extremely
1:17 am
reputable polygrapher in the orlando area that polygraphed her, and, of course, she didn't have the money to do it, so we went ahead and paid for it. and there were just four questions asked. basically we figured this was going to be a 30-minute polygraph. and it ended up 5 1/2 hours and failed the questions -- i mean literally just miserably. >> i'm trying to do everything to find her, you know, answer any questions i have to because i know i didn't do anything with -- to that little girl. i would never hurt her. i mean they love me -- i mean they look at me like their mom, you know. they -- you ask legina, they'll tell you. they talk lovely about me and i'm so good to them kids. >> well, it's my understanding that the waiver stated that she is waiving -- that she has an attorney, robert fields, and that she's waiving -- she's going against my wishes. my understanding it's against my wishes, something to the effect of she wanted to prove herself
1:18 am
innocent or something. >> i'm mike brooks in for nancy grace and we're taking your calls live. well, we just heard a clip from tim miller saying that misty croslin doesn't trust the police. well, it sounds like the police don't trust misty croslin either because they want to know if anybody saw misty croslin that night, please contact them or crimestoppers. so where was misty? was she at home? nobody knows. and the polygraph she took, four questions. number 1, 99% deception. number 2, 99% deception. number 3, 95% deception. number 4, 42% deception and she also took another test, and that was a layered voice analysis. i want to go back out to mark nejame. mark, when did she take the polygraph? what day did she take the polygraph? >> i'm sorry. i don't remember.
1:19 am
it was a day or so before the voice stress. she took the polygraph had orlando. she took the voice stress and hypnosis in satsuma. >> so our -- clark was telling me if my ear it was the 19th of august. then she took a layered -- i call it voice tress analysis last night, but it's actually a layered voice analysis. right now want to go out to t.j. ward joining us in atlanta, he's president of investigative consultants international, and he's the one that actually evaluated misty croslin cummings with the layered voice analysis. okay. t.j., you know that i'm not real keen and you heard mark. i'm not real keen and mark is not real keen. a lot of people aren't real keen on this layered voice analysis, so, number one, i want you to try to sell me on this so it's not some hocus-pocus stuff that i think, you know, might as well have a crystal ball and what exactly -- what kind of questions did you ask her, and how was misty croslin deceptive? >> well, the layered voice
1:20 am
analysis is -- everybody -- it's a 21st century truth technology. and a layered voice analysis is not a question and answer-type test. what i would do, i would ask her specifically what happened between the 9th of february and to the 10th of february, and i let her ramble, and as she rambles, it tells me, it shows me stress, it shows me inaccuracies, it shows me things she's talking about that may not be true, and at the end of our test, it showed that she knew something about the disappearance of haleigh, and so we have taken it and not only have we given -- taken this test but we've given this test to law enforcement and allowed them to use this test in the course of their investigation. >> but, t.j., wouldn't she -- she's 17 years old. you know, a polygraph monitors vital signs, heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate. you know, this, wouldn't she
1:21 am
just be under stress going through this test? >> when she takes this test, we -- it takes -- it does a baseline so we know how much stress she has when she's taking it. and what it does, her involuntary changes in her voice that she can't tell, i can see what's going on if her brain waves and how it comes out of her mouth and what she says and how she says it. >> you can -- i don't get how you can tell what is going on with her brain waves but we'll be back with more to talk more about this layered voice analysis. and we're taking your calls live. show and tell you weren't always my favorite day. with all the pet hair in the air, i'd spend class preoccupied, bothered by itchy eyes. but now i have new zyrtec® itchy eye drops. it works fast, with just one drop, to relieve my itchy eyes from allergies for up to 12 hours. no other allergy itchy eye drop works faster or longer.

1:24 am
female announcer: from jennifer, while supplies last, this luxurious microfiber sofa and chair, just $399. our most dramatic offer ever: both pieces, $399, from jennifer. >> it could have been any one of us and our children, anyone. nobody knows where the cycle or cycle -- nobody knows. it could be anywhere, anywhere. you don't know. >> are you blaming yourself? >> i just know like i feel like that, you know, i wish that they would have took me instead of her, because i could have
1:25 am
fought. you know, she's only 5. she can't really do anything and i just wish they would have took me instead of her. what do they want with a little 5-year-old? >> i'm mike brooks in for nancy grace. we're taking your live calls. misty croslin cummings fails a polygraph miserably. also fails a layered voice analysis and it's interesting. before i came on tonight, i was looking on facebook, on nancy's facebook page talking about who was going to be on tonight and look at the comments from our viewers and everybody -- everybody thinks that misty croslin knows more than she's telling. i want to go back out to t.j. ward, president of investigative consultants international. he's the one that gave the layered voice analysis to misty croslin. now, before the break, t.j., you said that you can tell what they're thinking. help me understand that, please. >> okay. what it does, first of all, i want to tell you this is not voice stress. this is layered voice analysis. >> layered voice analysis. >> and we can -- we can use this without the person being in
1:26 am
front of us. we can use it over the phone. i can do it from a tape-recording. i can put it off to the tv. i can do it without any distractions from the person in front of me. but we can use this equipment from involuntary changes of the voice and what happens, the voice processes through from your brain waves out of your mouth and involuntary brain waves and 2,800 parameters of algorithms, it can tell you what is going on. >> let's bring in a shrink. lillian glass, ph.d. psychologist, body language expert can be used in these interviews. what do you think about this, lillian? >> well, well, i'm also a voice analyst. i do forensic voice analysis and body language and behavioral analysis, so i can tell you that you can do this just by looking at misty. you don't necessarily need the machine and all of the equipment. so i'm totally with you, mike. if you look at the voice pattern, if you listen to her speak, she closes off.
1:27 am
she doesn't speak loud enough. she dies off at the end, but look at her speech. like, um, that's always a sign of deception when it's done consistently. not always, people say like um all the time but when it's in context, look at her body language, looking away, blinking. she has a lot of signs of deception. >> i still don't believe her. you may have tried supplement pills to combat joint discomfort but is there a faster way to find relief? try new and improved elations. this delicious, once-a-day joint supplement drink is clinically proven to improve joint comfort in as little as six days. elations contains effective levels of glucosamine and chondroitin and it's more absorbable than supplement pills. in fact, some reported improved flexibility in as little as three days. improve your joint comfort with a fast alternative. try elations today. brand power. helping you buy better.

1:29 am
1:30 am
ronald, has a theory that misty left the home sometime during the night been disproved? >> i'm not sure i believe that it has, nancy. i'm almost 100% sure but i wouldn't say that and lie to you. i'm pretty sure it has been disproved. >> do you believe she left the home and left her children alone, ronald? >> absolutely not. >> i don't know what to make of it. it bothers me but i really don't know what to make of it. i mean her story's changed
1:31 am
several times, and now she's the one that supposedly found the shirt. i mean it just -- it doesn't make sense, and i know my kids did love her. they told me that, and i just hope she would not have nothing to do with this. >> i just want everybody to know i didn't do anything to that little girl. i loved her like she's my own and i'll do anything to get her back and if people think that i had something to do with it, if i had something to do with it, if i knew where she was, we wouldn't be sitting here today, we would have her and i don't. i don't know where she is. >> i'm mike brooks in for nancy grace. i want to go straight out to the line. sue from new york, thanks for joining us. >> caller: hi, mike. always nice to hear your voice on the show. >> thank you, sue. >> caller: didn't she take a lie detector test right at the beginning at the same time that ronald took one, and i believe we had heard from the police at that time that ronald had passed one, but we had not heard the
1:32 am
final verdict on misty. did that ever come through? >> well, you know, sue, you're right. they did take one right in the beginning from the fbi. back out to t.j. hart, news director from wsky. did we ever hear what the results of the early polygraphs were, t.j.? >> no, ronald claimed that he passed with flying colors and crystal said that, oh, yeah, i passed, i passed. we've never heard from law enforcement confirming that and neither have they confirmed anything with misty. she said on the "today" show she was pretty sure she passed it. hadn't heard anything to the contrary, so there's a lot of -- there's a lot of thinking that folks passed the test but then again, the fbi has it and they've not said yea or nay on it. >> in cases i've had if they failed it or if they implicate themselves, i would lock the guy up right there for bomb threats. came down and that was the end of the case but normally they do not tell you. i want to go out to lawyers. john burris from san francisco, noted defense attorney and from new york, another great
1:33 am
attorney, defense attorney, i hate to say that, alex sanchez. thanks for joining us, guys. okay. we've got the polygraph failed. voice stress analysis. john, has voice stress analysis ever been admissible in court? >> i doubt that it ever has. i mean i can't say that it's never ever in any jurisdiction around the country but i can tell you it certainly hasn't met the test of reliability to the extent that any court would allow it to come into evidence. it's very much like polygraph. there's so much subjectivity. i think one person mentioned it depends upon who the person is who is giving the test. i think the same issue would follow with respect to the layered voice test analysis, so i can't imagine it coming in any court, and certainly not in the case involving this young woman. >> alex, have you ever heard? i've never heard of it.
1:34 am
polygraphs, yes. if both parties say, okay, but i've never heard of the layered voice analysis being admitted in court. have you? >> no, no, that voice analysis test has not been scientifically established in any court and, therefore, has no value in any particular court at the present time. but i hate to disappoint the viewers who are watching the show but the voice analysis, the polygraph, the doc that can examine people's body language or the hypnosis has no value in this case or a court of law whatsoever. it's not a substitute for evidence so until they come into this court, until they come forward with some type of evidence, this case doesn't appear to be going anywhere at least against misty. >> but, alex, don't you agree with me that it is a very good investigative tool, the polygraph? >> yeah, it's an investigative tool because you're getting the person whom you believe may have some information to answer some questions. and maybe you can get them to make some inconsistencies and maybe they may even confess that they committed the crime, but in terms of the polygraph determining that you are lying, that is not coming into evidence, period. >> right.
1:35 am
>> one of the real values of the polygraph is the examination of the person before and afterwards. generally what happens is the police, once they tell a person that they have -- they're not being truth full, then that personal will generally and sometimes often do then confess and give out more information. so the value really -- when you have a lady who spent five hours and that's a long time for an examination. i think they were were really helping during that five-hour period that she would break down and give out more information. she did not. >> yeah, you know, most polygraphs i've had, they go for an hour, two hours, but five hours, i've never heard -- now, guys, i want to ask you another thing. she on this private polygraph and the layered voice analysis, she just went ahead and did it. if you were her lawyer, what would you say, whoa, hold on a minute. i wouldn't have her take it. would you, john? >> no, i would not. given the fact she's already taken one and given the fact she's already talked a lot already, there really wasn't any need for her to do that. i know her counselor advised her against it, but given the amount
1:36 am
of time that has taken place and a lot of emotions are involved, the chance of getting an unreliable one is increased because of the kind of stress/pressure she's under. >> i don't blame tim miller at all. if they're saying, tim, will you come back and help us search? now, if i'm tim, i'll go, okay, look, you submit to a polygraph that i'll pay for because i don't want to waste my time, my volunteers and my resources coming back down to satsuma if you're not being up front and cooperative with police which sounds like she's not. i want to go back out to the line. sharon from florida, thanks for joining us. >> caller: hey, how are you doing? i like your show. my question was, there's been so many different -- misty i thought was involved from the beginning, number one, but in one of her interviews she has said that she had went and looked under the bed, and my question is, how do you look under a bed when the mattresses are laying on the floor?
1:37 am
>> natisha lance, producer of "the nancy grace show," do you recall her saying she looked under the bed? >> i recall ronald coming saying he turned the house upside down looking for haleigh. i don't recall misty saying she looked under the bed. as you can see, they are mattresses that are on the floor. >> right, exactly, and she had to walk past, if i'm not mistaken, walk from her bedroom, the master bedroom that had a master bath past that and noticed that the back door was open. we talk about this back door. it was propped open with a cinder block, and, t.j. hart, correct me if i'm wrong, but early on didn't ronald come in and say, um, i don't know where that cinder block came from. >> i remember that that being said. there's a lot of questions about that, that back door as you well know. no sign of forced entry was one. it had been forensically examined at one point in time then when our nancy grace crew
1:38 am
with marlena schiavo and theresa nevus had gone through, the house that was removed from its hinges, and then examined again. so, there's -- there's still a lot of questions about that. >> yeah, you know, and i want to go out to dr. joshua perper, noted chief medical examiner of broward county and author of "when to call the doctor." dr. perper, again, thank you for joining us. >> you're welcome. >> in this case, you always hope they find this little girl alive but when it comes to the cinder block, is it possible to get any evidence at all off a cinder block, even maybe some touch dna? >> yes, it's possible because even very tiny amount of dna can be detected and can be multiplied or amplified rather, so most likely they examine it very carefully under magnified lenses. they probably also swab it, and so they should have result, whether there was any evidence. just the question of testing and proving whether there is
1:39 am
something there or not. >> t.j. hart, we don't have much time. quickly, the task force that was brought together back a number of months ago to take a look with fresh eyes on this, has it gone anywhere? >> they are working night and day on this. they have fdla, they have local law enforcement, fbi is kept in the loop on this. they have well over 138 cds full of audio interviews. they have tons and tons of books and tons and tons of forensic evidence on this, most of which has been analyzed at this point. they were going to have another roundtable meeting. that has not been deemed necessary since they're keeping in touch with each other pretty much face to face each and every day. nobody wants to get this solved any quicker than the putnam county sheriff's office and the florida department of law enforcement. >> yeah, well, thank you, t.j. there's going to be a lot more on this case but right now are you guilty of being nancy grace's number one fan? plead your case, and send us your story as to why that fan is you. we are looking for stories that stand out.

they are on video leaving together from l 'beurge, they are leaving together at 6:30 p.m. leaving for the poker tournament. we have them leaving the sandy mountain lamar, and then we see mr. jenkins leaving without ms. fiori. then we see him leaving the room where he checks out at 9:00 a.m. mrs. fiore is not seen again. >> it would appear that a violent struggle did occur in
1:44 am
the front passenger's right side. the blood loss appears to be more significant in the back seat area, so it would appear that the injuries that we had originally seen ms. fiore sustain would be consistent with what was found in the vehicle. >> it is looking as if a relationship that got out of hand, and a jealous rage. >> this beautiful swimsuit model brutally, brutally murdered allegedly by her former husband ryan jenkins. i want do go out to john from wskx, and what was found? >> well, blood and evidence was found in the car. the white mercedes that was belonging to jasmine fiore very
1:45 am
well could have been the murder scene. they said they found the blood and the hair and the evidence of a violent struggle, but they also found blood and hair in the hotel room in delmar on the patio, but they don't know where the murder scene was, but they seem to lean toward the car. >> what kind of evidence did they find -- okay, we have blood. a lot of blood? blood spatter? what kind of blood evidence was in the car? >> a lot of blood and blood splatter inside of the car, and as you heard him say a minute ago, basically consistent with perhaps being beaten inside of the car and with a struggle going on and with head injuries. >> so, now we know basically a motive. i want to go straight out joining us by phone from buena park, the sergeant who is a ipo with the police department. sarge, thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> now, how much blood was in the car? was it obvious?
1:46 am
who told you that the car was in the trader joe's parking lot? how did that come about? >> yeah, that came from an observant citizen who had seen that vehicle and called us in. they had been watching all of the news programts and was looking for it like many other tips, this one just happened to be the right one. it is ironic that it happened to be a mile, within walking distance of the suspect's residence. we think that he dropped it off just prior to preparing to split to canada. >> oh, okay. now, in west hollywood, i am sure there is a lot of video surveillance cameras there at trader joe's and were you able to glean anything at all from any video surveillance? >> no, i haven't come up with anything on the video angle, but we have come up with whosome witnesses who said it was there since the day she was murdered, so, just over a week ago. >> so, looks like, so, looks like that was the scene, do you think of her murder?
1:47 am
>> it is looking like it. we can't exactly say where she was killed, but it is certainly was a method of all of that destruction. there was, you know, plenty of in evidence that vehicle to show that a horrible struggle occurred, and it was everything pointing at only the hands of mr. jenkins. >> was she -- was in seated in the passenger seat or was she driving the car? do we know? >> well, most likely she was in the passenger seat, because most of the blood was over on the passenger's seat, and then in the back, back seat, there was quite a bit of pool manage ting back seat, and we believe that the suitcase at one point was laid on the back seat, and probably after this violent struggle. >> ah. so there was -- i mean, that is a lot of blood if you have pooling an congealing in the car, that is a lot of blood. i want to go straight to john,
1:48 am
and the time line now, we see them at the hotel, and they leave the hotel about 2:30. then, about 4:30, he comes back by himself. >> he did. i just walked through this with the sergeant a while ago and it is a long summary but it so fascinating though, because he comes back two hours later at 4:30 a.m. and runs into the door of the hotel and then seen on surveillance removing clothing in and out of the hotel. they think he was clearing space in the suitcase for the body. at 9:30, he leaves the hotel and drives roughly an hour and a half to corona, california. that is where they think that he may have cut off the fingers and the teeth, and then he goes the buena park, and dumps the body. a wnitness sees the car go in ad out of the alley, and then he goes back to the residence in the l.a. area at 5:00. >> wasn't she identified only because of a breast implant? i have a sample of one right
1:49 am
here, and this breast implant, all of these implants have a number, a serial or a number that they could identify, and that is the only way that they were able to identify this woman? and now, tonight's cnn heroes. they say i'm a bilateral transtibial amputee. so in laymen's terms i lost both legs from the calf down. i am a normal kid that was turned into a abnormal situation. it was a freak accident. i was 16 years old and my parents and i were going to go scuba diving. there were tons of waves in the water and i was pushed into the water and i saw blood. i have great support and that is what helped me through it. that is when i saw the other kids in the hospital who didn't have great support, and you recognize that something has to be done. i'm jordan thomas and i started
1:50 am
my foundation there in the hospital. i provide kids with limbs that they deserve. a lot of the insurance companies will put a cap on them or provide one pair of legs in their lifetime. you would never know that you need legs every year and half. it is like shoes, you outgrow them. noah, and his first leg, it didn't bend. they asked for a new knee, but it was denied. so we provided him with a bendable knee and he is so proud to show off how his knee bends. it is great. we have committed to the kids until they are 18. so we have a lot of work ahead of us, a lot, but we are excited about i. we need to work on this, and providing the prosthetics provides a whole gamut of opportunity for them to achieve what they want. think i think that they deserve that. ♪ you're the one
